New Year holidays are time when Narita is energized most in one year.
The big turnout is shown every year from New Year holidays to the Setsubun.
Amazing Japanese Buddhist Temple. One of my favourites in the country. Climbing the entry staircase takes you through the gate to another world.
A famous temple in Chiba. Somehow there are many Unagi restaurants from the station to the temple. Once you arrive at the gate, you need to climb up a few stairs to reach the temple. This temple is very beautiful, and there is amazing park where you can walk around. Definitely visit the temple if you around the area.
It fantastic place to met some history of Japan and it is for free which is a great bonus! Some structures are form X century so it is really very impressive. If you happen to be around it is simple must see! Great experience .
So i had planned to visit this place before coming to Japan. Yesterday i finally went and i was not disappointed. Its free admission and the place is huge! There is a park connected to the shrine and this was very worthwhile. The park has a waterfall and 3 ponds. The size of the structures are incredible and you can get hand drawn stamps in the temple. Enjoy.
Visited during a long layover in Japan. Definitely worth the trouble of leaving the airport! The temple is beautiful and the grounds and trails are such a treat to walk. Wasn't too overcrowded when I was there mid-week, and there was a neat ceremony going on mid-day. Highly recommend!
